.3 million people organized online, the largest list outside the obama campaign. and we moved more than one million new and unlikely voters to the polls, and we have more than 1.2 million organized voters. that is how we do our work, and that is what gives us the power to do what you have seen us do, whether in maryland or new york city, where we have worked with a broad range of groups to push mayor bloomberg, forced mayor bloomberg to stop what is the largest local racial profiling program in the entire country. and we just produced a veto- proof majority, second time in a row. first time for the vote, second to override his vetoes, and we did that because we are organizing, we are building big, broad audacious coalitions. the march on washington will be referred to as a grand alliance, and we are winning. today i want to talk about the history of racial profiling. we in this country, as a young country, have no excuse not to know our own history. and when we forget our history, we repeat our history, and we do so at a great price. specifically, i want to talk to you today about a century

. it was not an overwhelming kingdom or nothing like that, it is just the disrespect of the presidency, as president obama has suffered with respect and decency. nixon had it, even though he was a vital person in some eyes. i am asking you to comment on two points. one, that affirmative action presentation came from richard nixon, a republican. two, i wonder if you can comment on the actual economic price freezes that nixon instituted during his term. today we have presidents who lack the guts to perform as he did. i think thin if you could please comment on the fact that republicans today reject affirmative action and economic price freezes and the fact that the presidency has lost the respect of the congressional connection. host: not quite about the film but the presidency as he sees it. guest: i will do my best. i will not claim to be a policy expert, but i think a lot of people feel the way you do. i know not chomsky preferred to the last liberal president. i think it is a fair point. you say you are a republican during the nixon administration. i think that is true of a lot of people. one thing we inter

delicate for the obama administration, right? >> oh, yes. very much so. i think everyone's seeing that perhaps the initial action may be directed towards israel and i think we've already seen today a call-up of reservists to help with a possible retaliation. we've seen further deployment of miss i'll batteries along the syrian border, and they're preparing for a direct attack or some sort of terrorist action. >> what if iran gets involved? >> then this becomes more of a regional concern. and we then are going to look at other players that may get dragged into this. lebanon for one. jordan mentioned. these are all things that again are being calculated, being looked at and i'm sure there's a lot of conversations going on with various ministries to sort of look at how can these options be mitigated in some way. >> tim, so how long do you think it will be before the united states might launch an attack on syria? are they simply going to have to wait for these weapons inspectors to come back with their report and what about the british? >> hard to say with any sort of certainty. but g
